Queenstown may be the adventure capital of the world, but their nearby neighbour, just 62km to the north, also has a lot to offer adventurists. Below is a roundup of the newest activities in the area.


Eco Wanaka’s Glacier Discovery Tour

This full-day tour begins with the helicopter flight of a lifetime over the mountains and glaciers of the Southern Alps, landing on the Isobel Glacier for incredible views of Mount Aspiring and its surrounding glaciers. Then fly to the start of the Rob Roy Glacier Track to meet your guide for the 10km (return) walk through the native beech forest of Mount Aspiring National Park to view the spectacular Rob Roy Glacier. The adult price is $625 NZD (approx. $597 Cdn) and for children eight years or older, the cost is $430 NZD (approx. $411 Cdn).

Wildwire Wanaka’s Go Wild Waterfall Climb

Your adventure begins in Wanaka with a spectacular drive through the mountains to the base of the Twin Falls waterfall. You will learn safety skills and then climb the via ferrata (an iron rod climbing route) alongside this spectacular waterfall. Along the way, you will cross wire bridges, discover hidden pools, and finish at a beautiful picnic spot with stunning views. The three-hour tour is $189 NZD (approx. $180 Cdn) per person.

Paddle Wanaka’s Heli-SUP

Begin your half-day adventure with a spectacular 40-minute helicopter flight, getting you up close and personal with Mount Aspiring and remote glaciers along the way. Once at the secluded mountain lake, 1000m high above sea level, explore the pristine area, fully guided by a qualified and experienced stand up paddleboard instructor, before relaxing on the shoreline with a decadent gourmet picnic. This is New Zealand’s only heli-SUP tour. This is run on demand.
